U.S. Birthday, Iran’s Revolution, week of July 2-8, 2009

RisaWe bid farewell to Michael Jackson (Virgo Sun, Pisces Moon). Ohm Mani Padme Hum. Saturday is the 233rd birthday of the United States, formed (Declaration of Independence) under the liberating sign of Cancer, Ray 3. The last weeks have seen the esoteric intent of the sign Cancer (Ray 3, our Solar Logos evolves through suffering) emerging. Cancer and Ray 3 create mass movements towards liberty, freedom and release from the past. They produce the illuminating Light of the mind (Ray 3, Intelligence in Action) influencing the demand for freedom. We can apply this to the recent protests (revolution) in Iran as the masses (Cancer) choose democracy and liberty courageously confronting a regressive regime that limits freedom, denies women their human rights and uses coercive religious force. We shall witness in the following weeks the outcome of the many Iranians (75% are under the age of 35) seeking liberation, independence and self-determination amidst violent repercussions. We also witnessed the Aquarian (freedom of speech) influences as the social networks of communication (email, blogs, twitter, etc.) reported the protests to the world. The past is dissolving at a rapid pace, and assisting in this dissolution are three upcoming July/August eclipses signifying even more change (and shocks).

This week, especially Monday, may be difficult for everyone. Tuesday is the Full Moon (15 degrees) lunar eclipse (15 degrees Cancer/Cap). The Soul’s meditative seed thought for Cancer is “I build a lighted house and therein dwell.” When the Soul directs our personality we radiate a light that nourishes the entire world. Join us, the NGWS, by reciting the Great Invocation at the full moon. (read more at www.nightlightnews.com)

 


ARIES (March 21-April 20) What is occurring with your finances and resources? Are there difficulties or are you managing well, paying bills on time, tending to needs with ease and organization? And how is the relationship between your work and home life? Are they balanced or is there tension? You will consider with seriousness what roles you play professionally and personally. You will seek to integrate them. A home business would do that. Be home more.

TAURUS (April 21-May 21) In the coming months your mind will expand into an even greater level of information. You will be seeking out and reading about what interest you. For many Taurus this is the safety and care of humanity in the future. There will be a focus on resources and finances in order to create the first foundations of the new culture and civilization. The next month sees all you’ve talked about come to life. We’re following you.

GEMINI (May 22-June 20) It would be good to consider a long trip somewhere important to you – perhaps a school or retreat center, a seminary or college. Wherever it is and whatever you do, the purpose is to find your way through the many and various options offered and to find how to best express yourself with language, ideas and spiritual realities most in your circle of friends do not understand. Someone waits for you.

CANCER (June 21-July 20) You may feel restricted physically within your neighborhood or wherever you find yourself each day. Something ends with someone and something begins with others. Whatever you are doing within a group or community and for the future, know that responsibilities will increase and then accelerate. Tend to your finances with great care. Have you bought gold or silver yet? And listened to solari.com?

LEO (July 21-Aug. 22) Use this time to be even more behind the scenes than you’ve been before. This is a time of rest and relaxation, tending to things at home behind closed doors. It’s also a time of remembering family who now reside in heaven. If there’s great grief the homeopath Ignatia Amara helps the cellular level release sadness that hinders being in the present – which untended grief can do. Something within ends for you. Bid it adieu with gratitude.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Is your mind working overtime, are you verging on being nervous? Are many thoughts flying about like birds at a nest of young ones? Use this time to gather information, create journals or a blog communicating with everyone important to you. Later as the energies calm, you’ll become quiet, serious and solemn, pondering upon the past several months. Decisions become clear and easy and real. There is much work to do as a new future direction has emerged.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) It’s best to tend carefully to your use of money. You may feel it’s unlimited and therefore caution fies away in the wind. You have two choices with your resources – overspending indiscriminately on trinkets or spending on  ‘real goods’ (food, water, vitamins, etc.), silver, gold, art, education, travel, or culture and for those you love. Do not neglect your profession. The world is becoming your home.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Has where you live become somewhat upset and/or disheveled? Are you wondering what the future is concerning your home and family and how you can bring forth order, nurturance and care? Is there some type of wound involved? Do you feel the need to travel somewhere (biological home) and stay there awhile? Things are very unusual and unpredictable, irregular, capricious and at times random. The rules are changed and we’re in in-between times.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 20) The energies that rule you have turned around lodging themselves within your body, heart and mind. You are entering a new level of inner pondering concerning facts in your life. You will ask many questions asked before though on an even deeper level. You may feel you’re alone again in a desert you didn’t create and at times you’ll feel that everything, including your life, is delayed. It’s not … it’s just in hiding (again) in order to create for awhile. You’ll hold on.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20)  As a long period of transformation begins in your life, your self-esteem also shifts and changes. Assessing the reality of your life’s responsibilities, you review your resources and finances. Very subtle change is occurring shifting your appearance, how and what you feel, and your ability to interact within relationships. The last is most important. Maintain truthfulness and love in all matters. Don’t be pressured by anyone or anything.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) It may be important to move back into the shadows, stay out of the limelight, retreat a bit and ponder first upon this past year and secondly where you’re heading. Has life become more difficult in some ways and are events less predictable as if the rules have changed? The new rules haven’t been formed yet. This situation will continue. Where is your home?

PISCES (Feb.19-March 20) As each day becomes slower and slower you sense the need for a more contemplative daily life providing time for rest and review before an entirely new reality is offered. What are the most recent questions you’re asking? Do they concern your goals, creativity, and life’s purpose? Sometimes when we’re called to new life endeavors, what we’ve done before is no longer available. It simply disappears. Is this occurring for you?

Over Hills and Plains, Riding a White Horse, Bow and Arrows in Hand

Saturday, early morning, the sun enters and radiates the light of Sagittarius. Three hours later, the Sagittarius new moon (0.07 degrees) occurs. “Let food be sought,” is the personality-building keynote. “Food” means experiences; all kinds, levels and types. It also means real food. Sag’s secret is their love of food. Many, if not musicians, are chefs. Some are both. The energies shift from Scorpio’s deep and transformative waters to the “hills and plains of Sagittarius.” Sag is the rider on a white horse, eyes focused on the mountain peaks of Capricorn (Initiation) ahead. Like Scorpio, Sagittarius is also the “disciple.” Adventure, luck, optimism, joy and the beginnings of gratitude are the hallmarks of Sagittarius. Sag is also one of the signs of silence. The battle lines were drawn in Libra and we were asked to choose where we stood. The Nine Tests were given in Scorpio and we emerged “warriors triumphant.” Now in Sag, we are to be the One-Pointed Disciple, riding over the plains on a white horse, bow and arrows in hand, eyes focused on the Path of Return ahead. Sagittarians are one-pointed (symbol of the arrow). Sag asks, “What is my life’s purpose?” This is their quest, from valleys, plains, meadows and hills, eyes aimed always at the mountaintop. Sag emerges from Scorpio’s deep waters, conflict and tests into the open air. Sag’s quest is humanity’s quest. Sag’s quest, however, is always accompanied by music and good food.
